HOGANSVILLE HOME NEWS - JUNE 24, 1999 - PAGE 3 !:. # % s and Gardens On May 17, my co-worker and Troup County Master Gardener replaced plants and weeded the Pamela Garden at Hogansville Elementary School. As kneeling with ordinary gardening maintenance work, of the warmth of love and showers of kind- the many contributors from all over the United States when this garden was established in 1997.

Plower gardens and friendships are alike in that they bloom in beauty with sunshine and showers.

West Point Lake swimming areas located at Earl Cook Recreation Area, Rocky Point Recreation Area, Yellow jacket Recreation Area and State line Campground may be unsafe due to the lower lake levels that exist as a result of the drought on the ACF System and water releas- es in support of navigation on the Apalachicola River June 10- 19. The swimming areas that the Corps manages at West Point Lake were constructed to pro- vide a gradual slope of less than 10 percent that extends from the water's edge at elevation 635 feet above sea level, to a depth of approximately five to six feet. This slope also extends hor- izontally about 10 feet beyond the swimming area's buoy line. Beyond that point, the bottom of the lake is not graded and there may be sudden drop-offs or other hazards present. With the lake level current- ly at 632.5 feet and a projected drop to 628 feet b.y June 20, there will be no water under the buoy lines at West Point Lake swim- ming areas. People who decide to use these areas anyway will be swimming in an area that may not have been graded and pre- pared for safe swimming. Signs have been posted to advise these swimmers to use caution. "Lakeside boaters and swimmers need to be aware of these changes," said E. Patrick Robbins, chief of Public Affairs, Mobile District. "Those people enjoying water recreation need to take extra special precautions when lower than normal water levels occur." Shallower water conditions could expose rocks, stumps or other underwater obstructions to those swimming or boating on the lakes.

Without significant rainfall on the Apalachicola-Chat- tahoochee-Flint River (ACF) System, Corps reservoirs are projected to continue to decline in June and July. By June 20, West Point Lake is pro- jected to be at 628 feet. After June 20, West Point Lake is expected to stabilized or rise slowly. "Engineers have made every effort to conserve water this winter and spring," Robbins said.

"Reservoir releases were stringently minimized during most of the winter and spring to store water for use this sum- mer and fall." Releases for nav- igation were suspended after the navigation window in early April and during all of May. Hydropower releases were minimized in April and May. Corps project managers and water management engineers work to balance diverse water resources needs--navigation, recreation, hydropower, water quality and water supply, fish and wildlife, etc. "All of the Corps-managed reservoirs on the ACF system support multi- purpose uses," Robbins said. These needs are balanced to control the flows of water to meet the diverse demands. The Mobile District website (http://water.sam.usace.army.m il) has the latest information on river and lake levels.
